My research interests lie on the analysis, verification, and optimal control of heterogeneous and complex dynamical models -- in particular of stochastic hybrid systems -- and in their applications in cyber-physical systems (particularly involving energy networks) and in the life sciences (systems biology). I am interested in a principled integration of model-based mathematical techniques with data-driven learning algorithms.


I am Professor of Verification and Control in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford. Earlier, I did research at Stanford University and at SRI International, and was an Assistant Professor at the Delft Center for Systems and Control, TU Delft. I received a Laurea degree from the University of Padova and MS/PhD at UC Berkeley.
